Does dermabond qualify for an intermediate closure ? I know they say to use G0168 , but this was done at an ASC.

This is from the Ethicon web side for Dermabond: it is for topical use only...it does not take the place of layered closure. Hope this is the information you were looking for;)

"Indications
DERMABOND ADVANCED™ is intended for topical application only to hold closed easily approximated skin edges of wounds from surgical incisions, including punctures from minimally invasive surgery, and simple, thoroughly cleansed, trauma-induced lacerations. DERMABOND ADVANCED™ may be used in conjunction with, but not in place of, deep dermal stitches.8"
